All Candidates to be Recognized and Honored on March 3, 2010 at Dorothy Chandler Pavilion

LOS ANGELES   —The Music Center of Los Angeles County, a national leader in arts education, announced the fourteen teachers and six schools named as finalists for the 28th Annual BRAVO Awards, honoring teachers and schools for exemplary arts education. The BRAVO Awards are an integral part of the Music Center’s leadership in supporting quality arts education for all students. 

BRAVO Awards nominations were made by principals, faculty committees, superintendents, and parents.  Finalists were chosen from 38 candidates who participated in an extensive review process including site visits and feedback by the judging committee. 

Awards are given in four categories: Generalist teacher, Arts Specialist teacher, School Recognition and School Program, and are accompanied by a cash prize.  The teacher awards are made possible, in part, by generous gifts from Club 100 members Lanie Bernhard, Marilyn Prewoznik, and Elinor Turner.

All candidates will be recognized and honored on Wednesday, March 3, 2010 in the Grand Hall of the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. Recipients will receive a cash award to be used to supplement their arts programs. Acclaimed producer/director Garry Marshall returns to host the event.

         The Music Center Bravo Awards program was established in 1982 to recognize teachers and schools for innovation and excellence in arts education. It honors educators who use the arts to revitalize teaching, enhance student achievement and foster self-esteem, teamwork and cross-cultural communication and understanding.
